  • This is NOT a timed quiz. Take all the time you need to consider the question and make your best selection.
  • Be attentive to questions asking which statement is NOT correct, or if all statements are correct EXCEPT.
  • If you have read the question carefully, your first impression of the correct answer is usually the right choice to make.
